Delphinium “Fin” Bloom returns to her hometown with one goal: get the mayor—her former flame—to approve a location shoot in Good Hope. But business turns personal when the two become entangled in a fake engagement to comfort his ailing grandmother.
For Jeremy, the romantic façade hits close to his heart. Still reeling from the way things ended between Fin and him all those years ago, he sees the fake engagement as an opportunity to get her out of his system once and for all. But instead of laying the past to rest, Jeremy quickly discovers he can’t envision a life without her.
Now engaged to another man, Fin had long ago given up on the dream of a life with Jeremy. Why is it, then, that her fake engagement feels more genuine than her real one? As the sleepy days of summer come to a close in Good Hope, will Fin and Jeremy give love a second chance? Or will the revelation of a devastating secret put an end to the fairy tale?
I'd say it's hard to believe it's already June but with temperatures in Nebraska hovering just below 100 degrees this past week, that fact is easy to believe! I'm staying inside where it's cool and finishing up the edits on Eliza's book "SAY I DO IN GOOD HOPE" while continuing to write Hadley's book "MARRY ME IN GOOD HOPE." Have I mentioned lately how much I wished I lived in Good Hope?
I'm loving the month of May! SAY I DO IN GOOD HOPE is with the editor and I just saw a mock up of the cover and it's gorgeous! SAY I DO (Eliza's book) will be released in mid-November, but will be available for pre-order in August. I'm currently writing Hadley's book (haven't settled on a title yet) and my fingers are practically flying across the keys. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it when that happens. :) I'm also working on a proposal for another series and am enjoying the process. What else am I enjoying this month? Why, the warmer weather, of course!

6/12/2017 I recently listened to the Commencement Address to Stanford Grads that Steve Jobs gave in 2005. Although that was nearly 12 years ago, I believe the points he made are still relevant today. One of the first things he said that struck a chord in me was about connecting the dots. Basically, this is that experiences you had that might not seem important, can be important (although you might not see it at the time). Important because either the experience has made you shift your course in a way that you didn't intend to go or by providing needed information/skills you wouldn't have otherwise (that you find you need).
